Real love spells that actually work
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk is a small film burdened with the epic, thanks to both its subject and its setting. Based on Ben Fountain’s 2012 novel, it depicts a day in the life of a young soldier (Joe Alwyn) briefly returning from Iraq to be honored with his squad during a Thanksgiving Day NFL halftime performance by Destiny’s Child. As he flashes back to his time in combat, our hero is torn between horror at what he’ll soon return to and his dedication to his fellow soldiers — specifically, to the small group of raucous, shell-shocked, confused young men with whom he’s traveling. His activist sister (Kristen Stewart), meanwhile, mounts a last-ditch effort to keep him from returning to the front; she’s convinced that a medical case can be made that Billy is too scarred by his experiences to go back. And all this time, the NFL, Destiny’s Child and a viewing audience of millions await. Director Ang Lee faced a conundrum. Billy and his … [Read more...] about With an Interior Epic, Ang Lee Gets Too Real for His Medium
Outside the guarantees of a contract, there is nothing sure about television. Before that legally binding document is drafted up and signed, there is always the chance that a studio will hire somebody else and leave the other candidate without work. Even after the promises are put into writing, there is no assurance that said contract will be renewed once it expires. Hollywood may be a glamorous industry, but no one ever said it came with job security.Actors are not exempt from this harsh reality either. Sometimes they are replaced after a few episodes of a show due to negative audience reaction and other times they are fired after already becoming a familiar face to the audience. Whatever the case, the effect each firing and replacement has differs depending on the situation. For this list, we’ll be taking a look at two categories. The first is mid-series replacements that audiences barely noticed. This could mean the replacement happened too early in the series for the first … [Read more...] about 8 Actors We Didn’t Notice Were Replaced Mid-Series (And 8 That Were Way Too Noticeable)
Tom Hardy didn't bring out the fangs for the Venom trailer, but he did bring out a classic Hardy monologue. The first trailer highlights Hardy as Eddie Brock, shown here getting checked out at a hospital, presumably after an encounter with a certain alien symbiote. Did the trailer Sony hopes will help launch a shared universe of Spider-Man characters work, even without a look at the Marvel antihero? The team at Heat Vision takes a closer look. Ryan Parker: I can't decide if this trailer is brilliant or a total dud. As I see it, they either have no CG shots completely rendered or they didn't want to give anything away. Perhaps they didn't want the Spider-Man 3 comparisons right out of the gate? But the problem is, some fanboys are going to be super annoyed now because of it, which is also not a great way to kick things off. Katie Kilkenny: I will be the first to admit that I'm a Tom Hardy fangirl, but this teaser set up an intriguing character study that … [Read more...] about Does the ‘Venom’ Trailer Work Without Any Venom?
The current preoccupation with men being “falsely accused” of harassment or assault, like so many other accepted truths can be traced to a moment in time during which a version of the idea was created and then absorbed into the culture. In 20th Century America, it all started when a playwright named Arthur Miller had an affair with a Hollywood actress named Marilyn Monroe.One of the more infuriating things about this #TimesUp moment is that there are far too many men continuing to be more concerned with the hypothetical possibility of “false accusations” (even though most of the accusations either come from multiple women corroborating stories about the same person, or have been confirmed by the accused themselves in self-serving apologies) than they are with the suffering of victims of sexual harassment, assault, or abuse.In a piece over at The Daily Beast, Maria Dahvana Headley writes about Arthur Miller’s history with Marilyn Monroe, and how that … [Read more...] about How Arthur Miller Created an American Myth of the Male “Witch Hunt” Men Still Cling to Today
